The need to unshelve the health students research and ideas and bring them to viable solutions.

Why did you choose to study medicine? this is the question that is always asked to

people when they are joining in medical school/health university because studying

medicine is the long-term commitment and shouldn’t be taken easily. Some of the health

students respond to that as a personal call, a pleasure for them to help people who are sick

and/or a great prestige being a part of scientists who discover new treatment for certain

disease and cure the world.

Other saying Medicine is the noble professional, it feels good and honorable to be in the

white coat and have a stethoscope around the neck and be called a Doctor or Pharmacist.

They believe these people are seen as a symbol of dignity and responsibility toward the

community. Other are in for the financial gain because they believe after graduating they

will secure stable jobs easily. Etc.

Of all the responses, the importance of studying medicine is generally put under common

umbrella of saving lives by treating the diseases and preventing their occurrences.

However in today’s world, for Medicine to advance, it is highly dependent on health

research. Research has always been the source of change to the medical practice.

Health research leads to significant discoveries, development of new drugs, treatment and

diagnostic equipment, new treatment and diagnostic Procedures and remarkable
